Non-fiction comics are a vibrant genre. Autobiographical comics have been popular for a while, but as we can see with the popularity of The Nib, journalism comics are a hit. But that is not the end of it. There are comics about science, biographies, and more. So the Vermont Folklife Center is hosting the Non-Fiction Comics Mini-Fest on April 23 in Middlebury, Vermont.
In conjunction with their exhibit of family cartoons by the late Stanley Lyndes, Family Traits: Art Humor, and Everyday Life , you can visit this FREE fest with an assortment of New England cartoonists. Many cohorts from The Center for Cartoon Studies will be there:
Angela Boyle (that’s me) (’16): panelist on “Cartoonists’ Perspectives on The Most Costly Journey”
Bridget Comeau (’15)
Iona Fox (’15): panelist on “Cartoonists’ Perspectives on The Most Costly Journey”
